This is Just Wrong and A Baby!

What are you guys up to today? After waking up, the first thing I learned was that my sweet cousin had her second child last night!! It's a baby girl (again!) and they picked out another beautiful name: Lydia May Nolan. We can't wait to meet her!

Yay for a lot of glitter and pink! (Source)

We have to get up early these days, because after 11am, it is really, really warm out. Not that we don't like the heat, we absolutely don't mind, but people get up at crazy night time hours (like 7am) and buy all the things! Rude, people! Leave some stuff for the sloths!
This morning, there were no more rolls left at the bakery when I got there at 10.30am! Thankfully, this bakery is open tomorrow morning, so I will have another shot at getting my favorite rolls with carrots and grains and all the good things! 

While we enjoy this gorgeous summer weather and the wonderful non-humid heat, there is just something really wrong in the world right now. 

There are no words for the confusion
this is causing in my head. 
It is hotter in Berlin than in Baltimore?! How is this possible?! This shouldn't happen. Ever. 

But since it is, we are handling this summer-situation the best way anyone could.

And today!

We are having so much gelato! Every. single. day.
All is good if you have ice cream.

Then, we had the best idea that anyone has ever had - to go swimming. Unfortunately, we just didn't think things through... We didn't have swim clothes, beach towels, flip flops, or sun screen. (Basically anything a normal person would need to go swimming.)

Yes, I was devastated.

Luckily, we found a solution to the problem and went to buy all the things today.
If you want to go shopping in Berlin, the opportunities are endless. Seriously.
They have so many stores here that it will be a true challenge to go to every single one within the next year. (I accepted it anyways, though.)

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens). If you ever want to have the most amazing shopping experience, you should go here! It is the second largest department store in Europe. 650.000 square feet of excitement! And they have everything. From Gucci handbags, over Nivea handcreme, to hand caught lobster. Absolutely everything! Except - Nick's favorite shoes brand. (Cole Haan)

We found every single thing on our shopping list (and more) on our adventure Saturday. We even found dog bones for Lucy that had been sold out at any other store. 
Our little furry roommate had a scare at the dog park today. She got in a fight with a much bigger Shepherd-Labrador mix. Everyone survived. No injuries are to report. So there is no need to worry. It was just a scary and loud fight over a ball. (Yes, I know. Ridiculous. Dogs! It wasn't even a special ball.)

She is going to stay home tomorrow and not go to the lake with us. I, however, am ready to jump in! In hopes that I will not drown or get lost on the way there, I am going to go to bed now and set the alarm for really early. 
You know....  Germans.... we just have to be the first at the beach to put our towels on the best available chairs...!

Do you swim in lakes or the ocean? normally no. I am terrified of frogs and fish biting off my toes. But we are going to a "man made beach". So it's okay. 

Do you prefer department stores? Or little individual stores? Definitely little individual stores. Today, however, we needed something with A/C. 

Do you eat ice cream every day?
